Vindication

You know how we all buy a zillion stamps and papers and ribbons and stuff we HAVE to have RIGHT THIS SECOND because they're SO CUTE? And then you know how these sit on a shelf, virginal and forgotten, living in the shadow of other crafty items, which are perhaps no more deserving, but maybe closer to your work surface...

Well I have to say, challenges are what make me go back and give some love to the still new stamps I've never used, and today's card is no exception. I squealed when I saw the Tuesday Trigger this week because I knew I had just such an untouched stamp crying out for this challenge. Here's the inspiration image:

And here's my card...
Stamps: Northern Hearts (Retired), Bird on a Branch (Retired) Ink: Basic Black 
Paper: Whisper White, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie 
Accessories: Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Markers, Label Punch, Oval Punch, Embossing Folder

Is that stamp a PERFECT match or what???

SEE - there IS a reason that we MUST hoard these pretty things. Game, set, match, stampers!! :)

Hope you're having a fun lazy Sunday.

  5. Adorable!! And thanks for reminding me that I have that set! It was SO cute that I just had to have it. Not sure it's even seen ink yet. But I appreciate the reminder that this set doesn't have to only be used for Christmas... thanks!
